Summary Intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring is a critical parameter in neurosurgical and neurological treatments. However, there are no non-invasive methods to reliably measure ICP. This project investigates a novel way to reliably measure ICP without the need for a surgical procedure.
Intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring is a critical parameter in neurosurgical and neurological treatments. Traditional ICP measurements require intraventricular catheter to be placed in the brain. However, there are no non-invasive methods to reliably measure ICP. Optical measurements of the optic nerve sheath diameter and pupillometry have shown some promise in measurement of ICP but have not been sensitive at high pressures. This project investigates a novel way to reliably measure ICP without the need for a surgical procedure.
